If you wish to own a home that takes you back in time even if it is only for a tad bit then this is a fine option. Especially considering that it is a home in the beautiful city of Melbourne. Nestled in the resort island of Sentosa in Singapore this is all about merging smart features of design with a modern retreat that will offer its residents some panoramic views without compromising on their privacy.
Unlike the modern minimalist trend this one is from an era where various shades and designs were used lavishly to create vibrant and cheerful interiors. And there is indeed nothing ‘neutral’ about the interiors here as each room seems to have its own distinctive personality and with even unusual décor like the brass pole in the kitchen and old record player that is showcased in the living room.
The use of energy-saving lighting installations water saving and recycling systems and smart solar design make the Elliot Ripper house all the more energy efficient. With interiors clad in pristine white sleek modern décor and warm hues splattered generously here and there this is one home that delivers in style!
But there are lucky ones who already have their own summer house — I’m talking about this beautiful and relaxing condo in Iporanga Brazil. Actually it is a condominium for summer houses on Sao Paulo’s coast designed by Nitsche Arquitetos Associados.
The curved wall was used to create a covered exit to the rooftop terrace where the family living here can enjoy fresh air and views of the surroundings. On the inside the wall also acts as a defining feature helping the architects design a spectacular display of wooden beams and details contrasting with the white walls. The tall graceful curved beams achieve their length by being joined by unusual mirrored dovetails secured with wooden pegs.
